Property Description

We are a hostel, yes, but we are more than that. We are the neighborhood (barrio) of Santiago, we are in the oldest historical area in Mérida and we like taking care of it. We like stepping out for fresh air (“tomar el fresco”) and drinking good coffee, we are the Tuesdays of trova and Polito’s ice creams. We like shopping and dining in the market, we like the park and the “marquesitas”; it’s art galleries and concerts, we like walking and biking. We like barbecuing in the hostel’s roof, and the parties in our bar. We like jazz and meeting people from all over the world, we like waving to the neighbors and taking our nap (tomar la siesta); we are travelers, not tourists, we are inclusive and friends, we are free. We celebrate being able to enjoy every second, every note, every beer and every conversation.
Yes, this is a hostel, but it’s so much more. It’s an open space of friends, travelers, locals and foreigners.

We may be from anywhere around the world, but now we are from the Barrio of Santiago.

Temiz bir hostel ancak şehir merkezine ulaşmak için 15 dk yürümek gerekiyor. Odalarda vantilatör ve klima vardı, ayrıca her odanın kendine air banyosu olması çok avantajlıydı.

Good Wifi, kitchen facilities great for if you want to cook your own meals. Coffee provided in the morning. Staff were friendly. It was just a bit of a walk into the centre of town. The room and air-con and a fan but the fan seemed to have ants dropping out of it. Other than that it was a great place to stay

Comfy bed. Good shower. Great WiFi. Quiet. Good roof terrace. Pretty damp place. Kitchen not very clean. You have to pay 20 pesos per towel to hire. Not very sociable hostel, weird vibes.
